Regional District to Weigh In on Postal Service Cuts
Prince George, B.C.- The Regional District of Fraser Fort George will be sending a letter to Canada Post, asking the mail service to reconsider some it’s planned cost cutting plans.
The RDFFG is concerned about plans to reduce hours of service at a couple of rural post offices. Canada Post had sent letters to the Directors for Crescent Spur, Upper Fraser and Dome Creek, advising that ” A careful review has determined that we have a very little customer traffic” at the three post offices, Canada Post is “considering reducing and changing the open hours to the public on weekdays.”
Although Canada Post says it will be holding discussions with the local representative of the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association, the Regional District is calling for more than that.
The Regional District will be calling on Canada Post to hold community meetings in those communities where services are at risk of being reduced so the residents who would be impacted by the changes have an opportunity to express how they feel about the changes.
